Magic Knight Rayearth OST

I stumbled over this piece of magic on complete accident, searching for another anime soundtrack. It blew me once it hit the 30-second mark. Just oh my gosh! I absolutely love the strings and horns and wind instruments! It’s so upbeat and chirpy, yet regal with its use of classical instruments! It makes me so happy and almost nostalgic somehow to listen to it. It reminds me of some Studio Ghibli soundtracks somehow. Love love love it!

Human After All from God Eater

Ok, so God Eater was interesting in concept but I don’t remember watching it very long…but there’s was scene in a certain episode that had this song playing over it and it made it VERY memorable and sad. Interestingly, the lyrics are in English, which is really cool to hear in a Japanese production. But this is one of my favorite songs from anime; a delicate, gorgeous female vocal, plodding piano and hints percussion accentuate tempo and mood. I enjoy it’s simplicity and it’s quite emotionally moving for me. ❤
